Part 1 of the Dracula machinima series from CandlelightStories.com.
Parts 2 and 3 are available on the Archive. They are 'Dracula's Message,' and 'Dracula's Prisoner.'
Bram Stoker wrote this fascinating gothic horror story. Some think it's a missing chapter from the novel, 'Dracula.' Others suspect Stoker wrote it several years before the novel. Whichever is true, the story stands on its own as a supreme example of its genre.
We've made our first machinima animation to tell the tale. For this movie, we used a 3D graphics engine from a game called 'The Movies.'
Adapted and animated by Alessandro Cima

The Dracula series
The three Dracula shorts (so far) on this site are fine efforts in recreating a literary source in the Mecha world, one which is generally successful. Nearly all of the dialogue is in the form of a soliliquy from the Count, read close enough traditional, Lugosi-style to suggest the famous precedent and not a parody of it. Very atmospheric and ultimately unresolved as a drama, the three shorts are finely done. There is little real action but plenty of dread and suspense, just as it should be. Inspirations in addition to Nosferatu look to be Dreyer's Vampyr.

L'atmosphère gothique est excellente et l'animation parfaite même si elle gagnerai encore un peu en fluidité. J'aime bcp les évanouissements du protagoniste. Ce ne sont pas des blondes poumonées qui crient et s'évanouissent en général ds les films d'horreur ? ;-)
